Line listing certification on air conditioner product lines allows us to provide the level of safety protection required for our equipment, but at a much reduced cost for our customers
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 03, 2016
Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. (CAPS), a leading commercial, industrial and off-shore heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) company based in Houston, Texas (US) recently established a 3rd Party Compliance Department. This week CAPS completed certification testing for their third line listing of products for the year.
The three Class 1 Division 2 line listings added this year are for 7.5/10 ton wall mounts (Groups B, C, D, and T3C), 70 ton self-contained industrial cooling equipment (Groups C, D, and T3), and 12.5/15/20 ton wall mounts (Groups B, C, D, and T3). These are in addition to CAPS existing ordinary and/or hazardous locations line listings for 1 to 6 ton wall mount mounts, .5 to 2 ton window units, 30 ton industrial package unit, and several product lines for general purpose.
CAPS related experience and expertise with 3rd party certifications continues to grow and now includes standards of Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTL), UL 1995, UL 1203, ISA 12.12.01 and NFPA 496. CAPS has also been working toward the North American Hazardous Locations (HazLoc) certification as well as certification to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards.
The IEC reports completed this year include the Wall Mounted Electric Heater, certified to IEC 60335-2-30, and 20 Ton Package Units, certified to IEC 60335-2-40. CAPS experiences with safety certification standards, and with the companies that evaluate those standards, has allowed CAPS to react quickly and appropriately to the sometimes indistinct aspects of the standards and certifications process.
“Field certifications for general purpose or hazardous locations on a job can be quite costly,” explained CAPS Vice President of Engineering Larry Novak. “Line listing certification on air conditioner product lines allows us to provide the level of safety protection required for our equipment, but at a much reduced cost for our customers.” He went on to explain how it is these factors, those that provide benefit to both the company and their customers that continue to drive CAPS toward product and service excellence.
